New Zealands top harness racing stables the "All Stars Stables" have produced The Fixer and Dream About Me to run the quinella in the National Handicap at Addington Raceway tonight.

The race was the first totalizator hit-out for the New Zealand Cup entrants hoping to gain some early form for the big race in November later this year. 

It turned into an eventful race, firstly with two of the six runners breaking and putting themselves out of contention at the start and then The Fixer running his last half 800m in a sizzling 53.71 seconds to get home late over the top of the stablemate Dream About Me in the shadows of the post.

Tote favourite Captain Dolmio trained by Robert Dunn led for the majority of the race but was run down in the straight to finish a slightly disappointing third.

 Natalie Rasmussen the driver and part trainer of The Fixer said on the All Stars Website after the race:

"The Fixer is a grand little racehorse and when you consider how long his career is and what he has done he is up to the best classes. 

"But he can be a naughty little bloke at times and I was a bit worried before the start but he began like a toff and got the best run after that.

"I thought Dream About Me went as well having to do that bit more work," she said.

The Fixer (Bettor's Delight - Tosti Girl) will probably run in the Maurice Holmes Trophy next and maybe the Victoria Cup if all goes well.
